Yeah! Man, that makes me wish I'd never sold my high school bike.

It had everything that one has: Suicide levers, stem shifters, shorty mudguards, 27" wheels and a hi-ten frame. Back then I didn't know anything about Cr-Mo, 700c, Presta valves or seat post sizes, and nor did I care... 8)

Hey, high school specials are more than welcome on Raturday. Bonus bubblegum points for braces and skip rope for heart...

Hey I need my Saturday job!


I'm old enough to be thinking about retiring, but I keep buying more bikes, not thinking about retiring anymore.


Old enough to have learnt to race on bikes with downtube shifting, hmmm I sort of recall something with only 3 gears, hang on, there was something with only
1 gear, but hang on don't I have some bikes here now that have only 1 gear.


Maybe old enough to have Alzheimer's, I may have had it but I'm farked if I can remember where I left it.


Ummm, older than or is that elder?


Hi I'm Elder Wal & he's elder than I am.

Oops, I did it again.


Bought another bike last night, it's a Spanish Razesa Cuadro (table????), seems the seller (in Spain) isn't happy that I've gotten it for 1.99 Euro (about AUS$2.60), plus a bucket load of Euro shipping. He's messaged me with an apology saying that he won't ship to Australia, I sent a reply saying tough titties, I want the damn bike.


Stay tuned for the final development on whether "Alberto" comes down under or not.

Señor... Aiy aiy aiy.... Pics!

Off topic, but am I the only person in Australia who builds with the front brake on the left?

More practical from a road safety standpoint, i.e. only required to indicate a right turn, hence left hand braking, but on a much more superficial, and therefore important, note, it makes the cable routing so much neater.

Wal, I suspect your euro pedigree may having you doing the same?

Na Dan, due to lots of M/C riding, I've always preferred my front brake on the R/H side, if I'm heading into a fast downhill right that I have to indicate, I'll indicate,stop idicating & grab the front, move my weight back, brake really hard with the front, trail the rear whilst indicating again & then corner, but there are very few spots where you really need to be on the brakes whilst turning right, you are usually turning across the traffic flow, I find it's more L/H corners that I take at speed, I indicate left too (yep I know Qld law says you don't need too, but it's my little bit for improving the 'look' of cyclists).



I've paid the guy for the Razesa, I have a feeling he's not going to send it & wait for me to lodge a resolution to get my money back, he's whinging that he's going to loose 90 Euros on the deal, hey not my problem, he should have put a reserve on it or set the international postage higher.

But if it does come (and I have a very low confidence on this), this is it-----

I think I'm getting the translation wrong, not sure why any bike manufacturer would call their model a 'table'.
Sort of think it could be dais, stage, podium or similar, but who know's with those crazy Spanish.

OK just translated it on a different translator, what I was seeing as table is in fact 'frame'.

Will now google & see if I can find an age & model.

Okay, your other half hour is up. Let's see it.
I'd be interested in the ss ride if I'm around. That hill at dutton park is gonna be tough.

to complete said SS i require the following:

1 x 700C front wheel. $10 maximum
1 x 130BCD crankset (donation level of dodginess) - there were about 50 of them on offer the other week :)
1 x set recycled bar tape. Otherwise its Chux, I'm warning you.

I did riverloop a few times on SS before I built the viner - as long as gearing is set for cruising and not belting along the corso, the cemetery hill is manageable.
